WARRENSBURG, Mo. — At every stop, all Tim Prescott seems to do is win.

After an illustrious four-year wrestling career at McPherson High and two highly decorated years at Neosho County Community College in Chanute, Prescott is continuing his success for St. Cloud State University in Minnesota.

Prescott, who had been out for several weeks with a hand injury, went 3-0 in the Central Missouri State Tournament on Sunday. He competes at 125 pounds.

Among his wins was a 3-1 decision over Ouachita’s Garrett Evans, who is the No. 4-ranked wrestler in the country. He also defeated Dustin Reed of Newman 4-3, a wrestler he had lost to his senior year in high school for a state title.

His third win was against Central Missouri State’s Malacai Collins, 2-0.

Prescott is a 2012 MHS graduate and was remarkably consistent during his Bullpup days, taking second in the state on two occasions and third in his other two years. He had a 118-10 high school record.

At Neosho, he was a two-time All-American and two-time national qualifier, while also earning Academic All-American both years.
